What would you suggest that I clean it with, I have used rubbing alcohal to clean it before resealing it, I used Aquarium silicone sealent to reseal the tank. i just don't want anythig to go wrong because I did not clean it right so anyone have any suggestions?
I used regular white vinegar and warm water mixed followed by aquarium wipes. Be warned however, the vinegar solution makes you cough a bit but it's all natural and does a wonderful job.

i've always just used vinegar and water and sun. yes vinegar is potent and doing it outside would be a good idea. rinse a few times and let dry in the sun.

Thanks yall for your support, Iwas a nervous wreck doing this but it all turned out well. I resealed the tank and spraypainted the back black and the put the eco in about 120lbs placed my plants moved my filters back over and let the water clear and then put the fish in. I worked on the tank from 9am until 5pm yesterday but it was worth it I will try to post pics latter.

Thanks again for all the help.
